National single launch tour: Hotels, Halls, Front Doors
Two engaging and highly respected singer/songwriters on the Australian folk scene are joining forces for a special co-headline tour this September & October.
Festival Favourite Liz Frencham (double bass/vocals) and up and coming singer/songwriter John Flanagan (banjo/guitar/vocals) will both be releasing new recordings on this expansive Australian tour.
Liz Frencham is a warm, exuberant performer, associated with multiple successful collaborations (FrenchamSmith, Jigzag & Dev'lish Mary) and a captivating soloist. She easily traverses genres from folk and bluegrass through to jazz and blues with gentle expertise and plenty of good humoured banter to accompany the journey. Liz will be launching her second AND third volume of live duets, along with a re-issued first volume.
Combining 70s folk singer/songwriter influences with bluegrass instrumentation, John Flanagan’s star is on the rise since recording his latest album in Nashville with producer Viktor Krauss. His engaging, honest lyricism and timeless melodies have seen him win over fans at major folk festivals around Australia. John will be touring on the back of the first single and film clip release (‘Whatever Makes You Happy’) from his upcoming album
These two engaging performers will share the stage, adding warm harmonies and subtle acoustic textures to one another’s songs.
